I have been enjoying the crap out of this show recently. The version of Mission is famous, but every song's a winner. Who Was John? is one track I keep coming back to.

What are your favorite JGB shows from '76?

5/21/76, chronicled officially on Don't Let Go is incredibly strong. Every track is beautifully wrought, with That's What Love Will Make You Do, Lonesome and a Long Way, and the title track being standouts.

I'm also very partial to 3/6/76, which features gorgeous playing and a unique setlist. You get both Beatles and Stones with covers of I Want To Tell You and Moonlight Mile.

That Garcia/Godchauxs/Tutt lineup was something, wasn't it?

Often thought the Garcia Band shows I saw were something even more special than the GD shows. Closer to jerry and a very cool sound - the crowd was hardcore heads and the jams were extra long. Kean 1982 is a great show and Garcia played his ass off at the Felt Forum that year as well... I like Ron Tutt best as his drummer and never really got into David Kemper as much. A great drummer, still he never seemed to really groove with Jerry. The shows with Tutt and Billy K. are excellent...

The Jerry Garcia Compilation 9 at sugarmegs is not one show but a "best of '76."

(Note that on the "j" page there, there are shows under "Jerry Garcia Band" and further down, many more shows under "JGB." I'm embarrassed to say it took me awhile to discover the latter ... for awhile I thought the 5 or 10 items under "Jerry Garcia" were all there was.)

7/8, 7/20 and 9/11 are all on my ipod (as well as 1/27 and 3/6, mentioned already).
no, wait sorry, 7/8 is from '77.

I don't listen to much Jerry band past '75. 10/27/75 is one of my faves. It has a nice Mission and a rockin' Pig's Boogie.

This looks like a good place to start. I'll track a few of these down and listen with a little coffe on Saturday morning. Thanks.

Listened to the Who Was John and got caught up in the spirit. Wow. Mission was an incredible follow-up. Credit to Ring for reminding us of sugarmegs.

If anyone knows a way to avoid having to listen to the opening bars of Sugar Magnolia before playing any file there ... let me know. Sugar Magnolia is one of my favorite songs in the world, but god, that's going to ruin it for me.
